Well, I really would love a Nighthawk or a Springfield Professional. Before Tripp messed up my Springfield TRP, though, I didn't feel like it was as accurate as past 1911's I had owned, and the TRP was a $1200 gun. So, that kinda tempered me on 1911s too.
I own 3 a 1941 Colt USGI shipped from factory Aug.1941
a 1972Colt Combat Commander I bought new in Denver in mar 1972
and my last is a Colt stainless 1995 Combat Commander . I picked up couple months ago Had a springer on Lay a way I walk in and saw the Commander. I will talk a good used Colt any day over a new Springfield .
I also have a Colt Mustang if you count it a mini 1911
:-D I've had about 4 of them and now down to 2, Springfield TRD and a Colt CC. I had a springfield 1911A1 and gave it to my son and a Colt Colt Officers S/S Double Eagle that I gave to my other son. I really like the Colt Combat Commander!
Again, Awesome stuff in quality photos. I have a "race jobber with all options cept light and laser, a Seecamp converted DA series 70, a Norinco, Two Colt commanders and a SA Omega 6" and Delta Elite Ultimax. Another picture project.
